The 10 Smartest People in Human History

Updated on May 30, 2017

1-Albert Einstein

A German-born physicist , Swiss and American of Jewish parents, he is best known for his special theory of relativity and general relativity theory. In 1921, Albert won the Nobel Prize in Physics for a paper dealing with photoelectric effect
His conclusions led to the interpretation of many scientific phenomena that classical physics failed to prove.


2. Nicola Tesla

An inventor, electrical engineer and a Serbian-American mechanical engineer. He is famous for his contribution to the design of the modern electrical supply system, X-ray, radio, controller, laser and electric motor.
Tesla developed the fluorescent lamp 40 years ago to be invented by modern industries. Tesla probably had thousands of other ideas and inventions that we did not know existed yet.


3. Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo Di Sir Piero Da Vinci is best known for Leonardo da Vinci, an Italian man with many talents and abilities. He was interested in invention, drawing, sculpture, architecture, engineering, mathematics, literature, space, cartography, botany, geology, writing, history, poetry Anatomy


4- Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician who was known around the world for being one of the most influential figures in science because he was a key figure who contributed to the modern scientific revolution.


5. Galileo Galilei

An astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher and mathematician who played a key role in the scientific revolution during the European Renaissance.


6. Stephen Hawking

One of the world's leading theoreticians and cosmologists, he studied at Oxford University and received his first honorary degree in physics. He obtained his doctorate in cosmology from the University of Cambridge, despite his physical disability and research on the relationship between black holes and thermodynamics.


7. Charles Darwin

A natural biologist and geologist, was known for being the founder of the theory of scientific evolution that opened wide medical and surgical doors.


8. Marie Curie

A Polish-born physicist and chemist, later acquired French citizenship. She is the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the only one she has ever received twice in two different fields (once in physics and one in chemistry), the first woman to be a professor at the University of Paris. With her husband Pierre Curie, she discovered polonium and radium, and won the Nobel Prize in physics. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1911 alone, and her daughter Irene Julio-Curie and her daughter, Frederick Julio-Curie, also won the 1935 Nobel Prize.


9. Max Blanc

German physicist, founder of Quantum Theory, and one of the most important physicists of the 20th century, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. Planck has made many contributions to theoretical physics, but is known as the founder of quantum theory, which is a revolution in human understanding of the nature and particles of the atom. In addition to Einstein's theory of relativity, which also revolutionized the understanding of space and time, these two theories form the cornerstone of 20th century physics.


10. Johannes Kepler

A German mathematician, astronomer and physicist was the first to develop laws describing planetary motion after the idea of rotation around the sun was adopted as a center of the planets by Copernic and Ghali.
